Up The Stairs

A film by Mia Maariel Meyer


Adam is a gambler who spends his time in casinos and gambling dens. He is anything but a common gambler though, he manipulates slot machines and uses the stolen money to square his father’s debts. His scheme begins to have problems when Ben, Adam’s sixteen- year-old son appears at his doorstep, out of the blue. Ben has broken all ties with his father and is living in a different city with his mother. But while we see them both try to patch it up and mutually accuse each other, we realize that drop-out, sociopath Ben is just looking for quick way to get cash and run away.

A complex father-son story that centers on the themes of heritage, responsibility and greed. The film tells the story of three generations that all individually become culprit and victim simultaneously, driven by their addictions and aspirations.
